And checking it twice!
No, it isn't Christmas yet, no matter what the stores want us to believe.
I have so much to say from this weekend - and so much I really want to forget - that I thought I'd just take dear Susie Q up on her tag.
Because I'm all kinds of lazy, and I need a bit longer to sort through my weekend.
Jobs I have had:
Babysitter, fast food worker, daycare teacher, tutor, office assistant, office manager, retail worker, editorial assistant, soup kitchen manager, college professor (yes, me!), and news editor.
(I won't include that three-day stint as counter help at a cut-rate dry cleaners, because I'm trying to block that out of my memory.)
Movies I could watch over & over:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Princess Bride, The Wizard of Oz, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionare - oh, I'm sure I could think of more if I thought long enough!
The *Secret* TV shows that I watch:
Clean House, Dr. Who (Ok, that one's not so secret, is it?), Are You Being Served and other Britcoms (thanks to my dear husband), America's Most Smartest Model (I love Ben Stein!)
I have lived:
Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina.
Chocolate, Mexican of most any sort, mashed potatoes, and peanut butter.
(Man, I guess if my favorite foods included "lots of salad greens" I wouldn't have nearly the weight problem that I do!"
Favorite colors: Dark blue, brown, lime green
Places I would love to be now: Home in bed. No question.
Names I like but would not use for my children:
Andrew, Trusty, and Madison - I had Andrews and a Trusty give me major problems at the daycare, and there are way too many Madisons in the world these days!
So, gentle readers, there you have it. Let me leave you with a little picture that was taken this morning, of a tour group from one of our high schools:
Yes, that's me in the front row. Yes, that pose makes me look heavier than I am. Yes, I really need a new bra! Yes, those kids did ask some inappropriate questions, such as how much money we make.
And no, they did not really want to be here. Makes two of us today!
